Learning Analytics

Learning Analytics work is conducted under the leadership of the Office of the Vice-Provost Teaching, Learning, and Student Experience in partnership with Information and Communications Technology. We have completed a number of projects and continue to explore opportunities to enhance the student experience through learning analytics.

Student Forum

The student forum is chaired by the vice-provost of teaching and learning and members of the USSU and GSA executives. The work of the student forum is important to the continual improvement of the student experience at the U of S. 

The mandate of the Student Forum is:

… is to provide a venue in which students can discuss important issues of the day so that university administration, governing bodies, and representatives of the university’s key stakeholder groups hear and consider the perspective of students on institution-wide issues that affect the nature and quality of the student experience at the University of Saskatchewan. The Student Forum will provide leadership on behalf of the university community regarding best practices in education, student retention and success, and other aspects of the student experience on our campus. It will also develop recommendations for policy development and the coordinated application of existing policies across the university. Matters for consideration by the forum can be brought forward by any interested group, including student groups, University Council and/or its committees, and colleges and administrative units.

The student forum meets up to five times each academic year.
